Jerry Wayne Day III of Paris, 37, of Paris, remained in the Lamar County Jail this morning following his Monday arrest by the Paris police on evasion charges.
Police said they saw a vehicle exiting from behind a building in the 1100 block of NW Loop 286 at about 11:30 p.m. Monday. The vehicle was pulling a trailer that did not have any working lights or a license plate, officers said. It was stopped in the 2600 block of North Main Street. The passenger gave the officer a false name and fled from the scene on foot, police said. The passenger was caught and identified as Day, who was found to have an outstanding parole violation warrant.
He was arrested and charged with failure to identify as a fugitive, evading arrest with a previous conviction and the parole warrant. Day was later taken to the Lamar County Jail, where he remained this morning without bond.
The driver was arrested for defective trailer equipment and taken to city jail.
